FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

A curtain heading tape is a strip of fabric that is attached to the top of a curtain panel to create a structured and pleated look. It is designed to work with curtain hooks, allowing the curtain to be easily hung from a rod or track. The tape contains pockets or loops that are spaced evenly apart, allowing the hooks to be inserted at regular intervals. Direct Fabrics offers a range of curtain heading tapes including pencil pleat, goblet pleat, and wave pleat options.

Direct Fabrics offers a range of curtain heading tapes to suit different styles and preferences. Our pencil pleat tape is a classic and versatile option, while our goblet pleat tape creates a more formal and decorative look. Our wave pleat tape is perfect for creating a contemporary and minimalistic look. We also offer various sizes and widths of heading tapes to suit different curtain panel sizes.

While most curtain fabrics can be used with any type of heading tape, it is important to consider the weight and thickness of the fabric when selecting a tape. Heavier fabrics may require a stronger and wider tape to support the weight of the curtain panel. Additionally, some fabrics may not be suitable for certain pleating styles, so it is important to choose a tape that is compatible with your fabric and desired look. Direct Fabrics offers a range of heading tapes suitable for a variety of curtain fabrics and pleating styles.
